Kylie Jenner just turned 22, and like any good billionaire, she's currently celebrating it with a lavish vacation in the south of France.
And listen...I love a good birthday party. But after stalking Kylie's Instagram over the past few days, I am truly AGHAST at how expensive this whole celebration must be.
For example, on my 22nd birthday, I went here:
But for Kylie's 22nd birthday, she went here:
I MAYBE treated myself to an ice cream on my 22nd birthday.
While Kylie went and treated herself to a private yacht.
My birthday cake probably had a "22" on it made out of cheap Party City candles.
While Kylie commissioned a gigantic "22" made out of fresh flowers.
My 22nd birthday lunch was probably a grilled cheese in my college dining hall.
While Kylie's birthday lunch included a handmade charcuterie platter prepared by a chef on her private yacht.
My birthday had balloons.
And actually, so did Kylie's!!!
Except hers were spread all over her private yacht.
I spent my birthday wearing a $19.99 zip-up hoodie from Old Navy.
While Kylie has spent the week serving up looks by Gucci, Hermès, and Dior.
I spent my 22nd birthday downing cans of Bud Light on my front porch:
While Kylie spent her 22nd birthday staring out at the Mediterranean Sea with the one-year-old toddler who will someday inherit her multibillion-dollar fortune.
On my 22nd birthday, I did not jump off a private yacht into the ocean.
But on Kylie's 22nd birthday...you guessed it!
TL;DR: Kylie Jenner is 22 and rich.
Here's me being happy for Kylie, while also recognizing the broader societal issues at play that allow anyone to get this wealthy while others work multiple jobs and still can't afford basic necessities:
